1 H5892 How does the city H3427 sit H910 solitary, H7227 that was full H5971 of people! H490 how is she become as a widow! H7227 she that was great H1471 among the nations, H8282 and princess H4082 among the provinces, H4522 how is she become tributary!
2 H1058 She weeps H1058 severely H3915 in the night, H1832 and her tears H3895 are on her cheeks: H157 among all her lovers H5162 she has none to comfort H7453 her: all her friends H898 have dealt treacherously H341 with her, they are become her enemies.
3 H3063 Judah H1540 is gone into captivity H6040 because of affliction, H7230 and because of great H5656 servitude: H3427 she dwells H1471 among the heathen, H4672 she finds H4494 no rest: H7291 all her persecutors H5381 overtook H4712 her between the straits.
4 H1870 The ways H6726 of Zion H57 do mourn, H935 because none come H4150 to the solemn feasts: H8179 all her gates H8074 are desolate: H3548 her priests H584 sigh, H1330 her virgins H3013 are afflicted, H4843 and she is in bitterness.
5 H6862 Her adversaries H7218 are the chief, H341 her enemies H7951 prosper; H3068 for the Lord H3013 has afflicted H7230 her for the multitude H6588 of her transgressions: H5768 her sons H1980 are gone H7628 into captivity H6440 before H6862 the enemy.
6 H1323 And from the daughter H6726 of Zion H1926 all her beauty H3318 is departed: H8269 her princes H354 are become like harts H4672 that find H4829 no pasture, H3212 and they are gone H3581 without strength H6440 before H7291 the pursuer.
7 H3389 Jerusalem H2142 remembered H3117 in the days H6040 of her affliction H4788 and of her miseries H4262 all her pleasant things H3117 that she had in the days H6924 of old, H5971 when her people H5307 fell H3027 into the hand H6862 of the enemy, H5826 and none did help H6862 her: the adversaries H7200 saw H7832 her, and did mock H4868 at her sabbaths.
8 H3389 Jerusalem H2399 has grievously H2398 sinned; H5206 therefore she is removed: H3513 all that honored H2107 her despise H7200 her, because they have seen H6172 her nakedness: H584 Yes, she sighs, H7725 and turns H268 backward.
9 H2932 Her filthiness H7757 is in her skirts; H2142 she remembers H319 not her last end; H3381 therefore she came down H6382 wonderfully: H5162 she had no comforter. H3068 O Lord, H7200 behold H6040 my affliction: H341 for the enemy H1431 has magnified himself.
10 H6862 The adversary H6566 has spread out H3027 his hand H4261 upon all her pleasant things: H7200 for she has seen H1471 that the heathen H935 entered H4720 into her sanctuary, H6680 whom you did command H935 that they should not enter H6951 into your congregation.
11 H5971 All her people H584 sigh, H1245 they seek H3899 bread; H5414 they have given H4261 their pleasant things H400 for food H7725 to relieve H5315 the soul: H7200 see, H3068 O Lord, H5027 and consider; H2151 for I am become vile.
12 H5674 Is it nothing to you, all you that pass H1870 by? H5027 behold, H7200 and see H3426 if there be H4341 any sorrow H4341 like unto my sorrow, H5953 which is done H3068 unto me, with which the Lord H3013 has afflicted H3117 me in the day H2740 of his fierce H639 anger.
13 H4791 From above H7971 has he sent H784 fire H6106 into my bones, H7287 and it prevails H6566 against them: he has spread H7568 a net H7272 for my feet, H7725 he has turned H268 me back: H5414 he has made H8074 me desolate H1739 and faint H3117 all the day.
14 H5923 The yoke H6588 of my transgressions H8244 is bound H3027 by his hand: H8276 they are wreathed, H5927 and come up H6677 upon my neck: H3581 he has made my strength H3782 to fall, H136 the Lord H5414 has delivered H3027 me into their hands, H3201 from whom I am not able H6965 to rise up.
15 H136 The Lord H5541 has trodden under foot H47 all my mighty H7130 men in the midst H7121 of me: he has called H4150 a assembly H7665 against me to crush H970 my young men: H136 the Lord H1869 has trodden H1330 the virgin, H1323 the daughter H3063 of Judah, H1660 as in a winepress.
16 H1058 For these things I weep; H5869 my eye, H5869 my eye H3381 runs down H4325 with water, H5162 because the comforter H7725 that should relieve H5315 my soul H7368 is far H1121 from me: my sons H8074 are desolate, H341 because the enemy H1396 prevailed.
17 H6726 Zion H6566 spreads forth H3027 her hands, H5162 and there is none to comfort H3068 her: the Lord H6680 has commanded H3290 concerning Jacob, H6862 that his adversaries H5439 should be round about H3389 him: Jerusalem H5079 is as a menstruous woman among them.
18 H3068 The Lord H6662 is righteous; H4784 for I have rebelled H6310 against his commandment: H8085 hear, H5971 I pray you, all people, H7200 and behold H4341 my sorrow: H1330 my virgins H970 and my young men H1980 are gone H7628 into captivity.
19 H7121 I called H157 for my lovers, H7411 but they deceived H3548 me: my priests H2205 and my elders H1478 gave up the Spirit H5892 in the city, H1245 while they sought H400 their food H7725 to relieve H5315 their souls.
20 H7200 Behold, H3068 O Lord; H6887 for I am in distress: H4578 my bowels H2560 are troubled; H3820 my heart H2015 is turned H7130 inside H4784 me; for I have grievously H4784 rebelled: H2351 abroad H2719 the sword H7921 bereaves, H1004 at home H4194 there is as death.
21 H8085 They have heard H584 that I sigh: H5162 there is none to comfort H341 me: all my enemies H8085 have heard H7451 of my trouble; H7797 they are glad H6213 that you have done H935 it: you will bring H3117 the day H7121 that you have called, H3644 and they shall be like unto me.
